A friend of mine is headed down to the DR next week, part of the team of bloggers who are traveling to the Dominican Republic with World Vision on a mission to spread the love of Christ and raise awareness of the needs of the poorest of the poor.
I read this post by the team leader (his blog is titled Jesus Needs New PR which is simultaneously true, hilarious, and forward-thinking) and just had to share it with you. If you do nothing else online this weekend, read that post and let it move you...maybe to do something like sponsor a child in need*.
To see the bloggers headed to the DR on this trip (holla girls!), click here; follow the links below to their blogs to read as they live blog from the DR starting Tuesday, May 4, 2010.

I'll be reading and praying for you, girls.
*While we don't sponsor a child through World Vision, we do sponsor a wonderful little boy in Uganda through Compassion, a similar organization dedicated to helping bring hope to the poorest of the poor through education, health care, food, and the light of Christ. I learned about Compassion through Shannon's Africa Story two years ago; earlier this year, Kristen live blogged her Compassion trip, too. Can I get an AMEN for the power of social media to do GOOD!
